It took about 2-3 months to find the right dose of cannabis. Everyone responds differently, so if you decide to go this route, work with the dispensary, keep a journal of what you are using, the route (vape, gummies, etc), how often and the dose. You have to experiment and find what works for you. If I need immediate relief (10-15 mins) I vape, to get me through the night I use gummies or tincture. The gummies and tincture take about 45 mins to work, but the impact last about 6-7 hours. Again this is my situation. The 1:1 ratio of THC and CBD is the only combination that relieves and prevents my spasms.

UNFORTUNATELY, THE COST OF Rx AND THE CANNABIS IS TOO STEEP FOR ANYONE ON MADICADE / MADICARE (INTENTIONALLY SPELLED WITH AN "A") UNLESS YOU HAVE OUTSIDE FUNDS OVER AND ABOVE THE $40 THE GOVERNMENT LETS YOU KEEP TO LIVE ON. WHAT A CROCK.

Good evening @trs, That is a wonderful idea to keep a journal. You are so spot on about being your own teacher with cannabis. Would you please share your reason for using it. What are your spasms about? Is it your primary source of pain control? I use tincture….both 1:1 and 2:1 …one in the am and one in the afternoon and pm. Have you tried the "hold it under your tongue" method to get the tincture to work more quickly?

I am pleased with the regulatory work that has been done to ensure better product quality and consistency. I have never had much luck with gummies or edibles. They seem erratic and somewhat unpredictable. How do you use them? May you have a lovely sleep.
